I'm lucky enough to have visited both of their shops in London and am now content that I can recreate a small part of that at home!
Other than these complaints, the book is delightful - fun, witty, mouthwatering and all round beautiful to behold. Despite contacting the publishers about the recipe problem I've had no response, but I assume future printings of this book will correct the problems.
Most of the ingredients are store cupboard staples, with very few calling for glucose syrup. There are very inviting photos of the finished product to encourage you and the style is humourous and friendly.Read more ›

I've bought this book for myself in anticipation of trying the recipes once I have relocated back to the U.S. I'm sure they will be well received!Published on 24 Dec. 2014 by Natobi
Really very disappointed in this book. Have made two of the recipes - cinder toffee (twice) and rose and pistachio Turkish delight and none worked. Read morePublished on 30 Oct. 2014 by J N Emery
